Wait, what?

P1020151

Hm, so it’s a cascade of bones, flowing down a staircase.  Some strange Mesoamerican thing?  Wait, the photo credits say:

“Cover art is from First People in a New World: Colonizing Ice Age America by David J. Meltzer.”

Ice age?  Okay, so pre-architecture, probably megafaunal…yes, those are pedestalled bones.  Were they once in a pit or were they in a pile?  Who knows, because now they’re on a staircase made by archaeologists.
